Dresden Files - Can't go home again
City of Brotherly Apathy
Philadelphia has always had a history of being known as “corrupt and contented”, with a complacent population and an entrenched Republican political machine removed and replaced by a now entrenched Democrat political machine. While generous and friendly on a personal level, the people of Philadelphia have grown less concerned over the years, the farther away that person and their troubles are. While the people of Walnut Hill will worry and work to help the folks on the same street or in the same block or two. it does not spread to the rest of the city. This door works both ways, while citizens of Philly may sit in stunned science, picking at their meals from in front of the TV, few if any will do anything about it.
